I think you made a good choice with the Shield. I have both the 9 and a 40. It may be just me, but the 40 seems to shoot softer than my G23 or P229, not much different than the 9. I can't explain it, it defies logic, but that's my take. I sometimes carry the Shield in summer and as a result I carry the 40. Both have been 100% reliable out of the box with no breakin with an assortment of FMJ and JHP ammo. I carry IWB but did put a grip glove on them as I have big hands.

Good choice. My wife loves hers and I was very fond of mine as well.

Late to the party, but I picked up a Springfield Armory XDs 3.3" 9mm about a year ago. I love the thing. Very compact, thin, 8+1, and disappears under an UnderArmor shirt.
My wife wants one now. She shot mine and a G43, but shot better with mine.
I apologize now...
Sign up for PSA emails. They're $415 now with free shipping, but IIRC there was a much better daily deal on them last week
P225 or S&W 3913 are some of the best single stacks out there in my opinion. The P239 never did it for me, it seemed fat and top heavy.
I agree with Dewhorse P225 or P6 if you can find one.

I did have a SW 3913 TSW no rail was a gem.
Good choice! I really like my Shield and for the money and fit, I found it a better deal than the G43 even though I'm a big Glock fan.
I really like the TTGunleather Mike's Special thin for carry.

Mine has been 100% reliable if it fits your hand and you can hit what your aiming at it might be your favorite carry gun.

Good choice. The shield is a great gun. Hope you like it
I picked up a Sig P290RS in 9mm last year, and use it with a pocket holster. The regular length magazine is a bit short, but still useful. The longer magazine gives a better grip, and can still be used in a pocket.
My other choice was a S&W Shield. The stock trigger on the Sig is better, to me than the stock trigger on the Shield. I've tried a shield with an after market trigger, and found the change an improvement. It also made the price about equal. I had to look some to find the Sig P290RS in 9mm-most of the ones I found were .380.

I use a Kahr MK9 or a Springfield EMP 9mm. Both work well for me.
+1 on the Kahr PM9. I pocket carry it and IWB. I've had it a while too and it runs and runs. I like the simple platform... it doesn't try to be a scaled down so and so.

I recently did the same. I really like the P938 Blackwood. Great looking two tone, excellent night sights, very accurate, comfortable to carry and flawless functioning.

I like the Walther PPSM2.
I will be swift in my attack. My venom is packed with enough pride and gun powder to take down
any adversary that attempts to tread on my freedom. You've been warned, but if you
still want to test me, take a step forward.
Walther classic PPS M1 with Talon rubbery grips.
Lightweight, ultrathin and accurate.
Interchangeable back straps assure a comfortable grip.
XS Tritium sights are another plus.
